Overview

Rio de Janeiro, 1913. The Secretary of the Presidency of the Republic is murdered at the former home of the Marquesa de Santos, known as the House of Exchanges, a sophisticated brothel where secret meetings take place. Under the guise of a medical clinic, the brothel is run by a scientist obsessed with the study of female sexual fantasies. During the criminal investigation, a forensic expert who frequents the House comes face to face with a rogue from Cais do Porto possibly involved in the murder. The two begin a competition to figure out who is the greatest seducer.

Praise

“Great literature.”
Die Zeit

“Rich, dense, clear — and at times of a perturbing, disquieting obscurity that fascinates.”
Le Monde des Livres

“One of the most original creations of Brazilian literature.”
Folha de São Paulo
